This is so ridiculous and it's nearly 20 min long?! I've watched a small part of it and Taeyong looks arrogant - too good for all of this. Yuta is getting worse looking. Taeil always have the creepy pervert gaze and Jaehyun really thinks he's a potential actor and is narcissistic.

if they wanted her to look like a corpse, they achieved with that fucked styling and skelly body.

all of them look kinda weird except for maybe seulgi. i can already see all of the comebacks in january with this aesthetic and sound cause kpop is unoriginal once again (this song isn't even original either but still companies will copy kek).

2nd girl groups will always be the better groups (even though most of them had terrible ps) because at least they tried to do different concepts and sounds and seemed like actual idols rather than glorified instagram influencers.

Funny how red velvet is praised for “not repeating concepts and songs” yet Psycho literally has the same BPM, progressions and fucking key as Bad Boy. I honestly wouldn’t be so disappointed if it weren’t how openly kpop producers get away with recycling shit and get millions of braindead fans going “omg this is such a bop, kpop > a-pop”.

I get companies want to chart well, and in rider to do so you have to make musically dull music to please to masses but I’d still expect fans to be more disappointed with how much they complain about Korea not having any taste. This year a lot of kpop songs were really noisy but the noise was at least musically interesting.

Yeri has what you call a "refrigerator body". Her waist will always look wide no matter how skinny they are.

No. 68938

>>68929
This is one of the better fits she's worn this year and her fridge waist still stands out. Her body was OK during ICC and Dumb Dumb but puberty just was not kind to her afterwards.
She looks fine when standing next to other ggs and male idols, but the other 4 RV girls have notably smaller waists and proportionate bone structures so she looks like a truck next to them when she's probably also very skinny irl

>>68937

Not an expert but what threw me off zzb at first was the contrast between the verses and chorus + the random Irene and Yeri raps in the middle of the song. I think a little more buildup would have made it an original public-friendly hit like Red Flavor because despite its shit arrangement I like the backing instrumentals and overall energy of the song

>>68896

I know we’ve already discussed Nayeon’s German stalker to death, but I didn’t see this crazy in-depth interview Kpopalypse did with him linked:
https://kpopalypse.com/2019/12/21/kpopalypse-interview-josh-a-k-a-the-german-nayeon-stalker/

It’s password protected but the password is:
iwanttowrapitsoftly

Basically the stalker is insanely delusional, but also very detailed in sharing what has happened so far in his trip (visited their agency three times - the police came the third time and he went to the station for questioning, but was allowed to leave freely). The interview created some drama in that fans thought it would encourage the stalker and was in poor taste. Those are def legit points, but it also looks like this stalker is so far-gone that his talking to a random kpop blogger isn’t really going to encourage him anymore than his own intense fixation will. Why I want to share (besides rubbernecking) is mainly because how well the article captured how the idol boyfriend/girlfriend relatability and accessibility image being sold can completely consume and delude someone (with those mental proclivities).

Not to say the interviewer was perfect by any means: he had a couple dumb questions and didn’t have the receipts to counter when the stalker just straight up lies that he didn’t write a reddit post approving of misogynistic violence toward women who reject men. The fact the stalker lies so blatantly about something so easily proven wrong indicates that yeah, he is mentally ill, but he’s also a dumbass piece of shit too! The stalker’s “nice guy” mentality in that he is entitled to meet this celebrity and this celebrity must give him a chance to get know him (because then she will ofc fall in love with him as soon as she does) is so fucking gross and seemingly prevalent.

i think it's a combination of tight clothes, being short, and having no muscles (carboxy shots and crash diets?). plus her body is quite rectangular so wearing tight clothes can make her skin look like love handles.

They sue with every right. This mistake was preventable and besides that, SBS continued with the shaky stage, so clearly no stupid accident.

Knowing Kpop, as soon as Wendy is presentable facewise again, they will put her on a chair on stage, so she will perform, after some physical treatment. (not sure, how to say this in english… physical rehabilitation?)

It clearly is. he already posted some photo of his "art" some time ago and a Juul was seen there, so really nothing new.

I know that most farmers are gg stans (judging by the not so secret wk and the calls to "ban all bg stans!") but you have to admit that the requirements for idols, especially female ones, are hilariously low, most "dances" are just doing sexy poses or aegyo while moving your arms for a bit.

No telling what else goes on for groups to promote there. They help prote "viral" moments too and push them really hard.

Well JYJ was effectively blacklisted from national TV as a result of disobeying SM. There's now legislation called the "JYJ law" bc of that, but I imagine that there's ways around the 2015 law to produce the same effect. There's only like 3 major networks in Korea so being blacklisted from any one of those will have a substantial effect on a group's popularity. Not to mention that idols are at the bottom of the ent. industry totem pole and Korea is immersed in age/senior hierarchies, so speaking up against MBC, SBS, or KBS is a bad idea if you're hoping to become a popular idol.

yea, I've been seeing people mentioning this because some where tinfoiling that SM was going to use this huge comeback to cover up from potential dating expose scandal on Irene via Dispatch and release the new gg sometime next year. Now, with the Wendy Accident SM might be afraid to sue since SBS and KBS are huge ass broadcasting companies. Wouldn't suprise me if SBS threatens SM with Dispatch.
So SM might just be "fuck it" make Irene and Joy model & act, give Seulgi the la Luna / lgbt fanservice treatment, Yeri stays as a networker / songwriter and SM releases Wendy's pre-recorded solos without her permission as they push through with another gg group.

Update on Wendy (article text in pic)

SM needs to sue the shit out of SBS. Wendy being injured and missing a comeback due to treatment and rehab is likely to be a huge blow financially (redoing choreo/stages, missing or delaying shows, etc). It seems impossible for any large company to not sue (or at least threaten and then settle), but then again I don't know korean law.

>>69181
No wonder AOA went on the variety manager show recently. They talk about getting a complaint once for being too loud, but frames it in a way like yeah we are a bunch of loud excitable girls whoops. Smart of them to hit the variety shows hard as their experience/comfort level on camera is prob one of their biggest advantages over newer groups.

No. 69191

I knew SM would do everything individual. They would never be like Twice and just make a song with a placeholder for her. And the fact that SM has not immediately sued by now speaks volumes.

No. 69193

>>69191
It wouldn't make sense for SM to sue immediately. They don't know the extent of damages (how much coin all this will cost them) and won't know till months later. I'm guessing the subdued announcements and updates from both companies are because there is a lot of closed-door negotiating happening between the two right now. This is prob why SM hasn't attacked or blamed SBS publicly. SBS is also probably trying their best to smooth shit over with SM as it is obvious to the public that SBS was in the wrong. SBS does have a lot of power, but I can't imagine them trying to win over SM with might rather than honey. At least, for right now.

No. 69194

>>69174
I think you’re overestimating how much effort SM is willing to put into a new girl group, and underestimating how horrible they are to injured idols. I’m pretty sure they’ve made an Exo member perform only a few minutes after receiving an IV drip. And there’s that video that went viral of Lay collapsing backstage as all the staff members walk past him and someone even snatches his water bottle. I’m sure other anons have more examples. No doubt they’ll milk the other Red Velvet members solo activities, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they made Wendy go back to work while still wearing a cast or something.

The scandal that hurt them the most was Seolhyun and Jimin not knowing history, they had to "reflect" for ages (I think they even took some classes), but who the fuck expects idols to not be dumb? lol

>1. [+1,116, -159] Seolhyun is definitely good at performing on stage

http://netizenbuzz.blogspot.com/2019/12/seolhyun-x-tzuyu-and-whasa-x-chungha.html?m=1
>1. [+419, -41] They'd be in big trouble if they didn't perform without their back dancers because of how empty the stage looked;; such a big difference compared to AOA who performed after that. If they ever have another comeback, they should individually practice their dancing skills.

In the end being charming/charismatic is the most important skill in kpop. That's why some idols look like they don't belong on stage despite having a good voice.

I wouldn't say especially female ones when the biggest boy group there is fucking bts. Could you ever imagine girls with their faces and everything be the face of kpop?

I think it's because SM is probably the most strict and perfectionist company out there, everybody get's molded into some kind of robot + 12 young guys were supposed to get along? + they're image is cold, they were never supposed to play around and act as if they're best friends. A couple years back this worked, but now fans want idols to be super close. Most of the time it's groups of smaller agencies who act all buddy buddy to make people like them for their psersonalities.

When I said the standards are too low I wasn't talking about their looks, but mainly their choreos. Girl groups barely even have to move, every toddler could dance the way they do, male idols at least break a sweat because they have to do jumps etc that normie dudes could hardly do (tho in the end this is still sexist because it's based on the assumption that women are physically weaker and not capable of doing difficult and exhausting routines like men).
Whasa might get lots of hate because she's hideous, but in the end she's still famous because her voice isn't too bad and because she has charisma. Solely being attractive doesn't guarantee success, even in kpop.
What have the lesser known members of most cutesy groups to offer? They lipsync, they don't need to be able to dance, their main job is just staying skinny, so if they're not even a pretty face, why do they think they could make it or deserve to make it? Momoland Jooe is probably the only one who had this much luck.

Because this is their freaking job…? (and supposedly their "dream")
>if i were a female idol i wouldn't even try hard since they rarely get the amount of fame some of these trash boy group get.
Great logic you've got there. Why even work at all when the richest people on earth will always be men anyway?

But talking about them "trying harder" also doesn't make sense, since they would lack the talent to do so, their choreos are based on the level of their ability (which is close to nothing).
I feel like so many of you are forgetting that kpop isn't the only source of music in Korea, the general public cares very little about it, they much rather dig ballads. And female ballad singers can easily beat boy groups on charts. Without a doubt there are talented singers and dancers, but they don't join idols groups. Idols aren't in it for the music, they're rich spoiled daughters and/or school bullies who think that being pretty (thanks to ps) and acting cute or sexy should pay their meals. Just look at what they do after their "career" ends: instead of learning a normal job like people in their early/mid 20s could easily do, they turn into streamers or they marry rich old farts. You can see exactly what type of people they are.
So, stop feeling sorry for idols not making it, or supposedly not being paid enough. Nobody feels sorry for some dumb bimbo who fails to make it in Hollywood either. It's not like they're poor 3rd worlders who have to sent money back home to feed 10 younger siblings, they would always have had the choice to just live normally, but they don't because they think they're above that.

And about the unfairness between girl and boy groups: how do you reckon do male idols feel when they see Twice being millionaires because of shit like above while they destroy their knees or backs because their agency thought "hey, that could be a cool move, try it"? It's not like in the west there men can get away with being fat hairy slobs, all idols (minus Shindong) are starving themselves, have to get ps, fuck up their skin and hair due to excessive styling and sometimes even get preyed on by pedo fans.

yeah it's their job but if you've ever had a job with a lot of coworkers there's always one or two who don't try hard but still get their paycheck. choreos are not based on ability because of that were the case half of these boy groups would be doing easier choreo. even if you're a millionaire, most people would be ticked to see someone else get 5 million more than you when you put the same work in lol. and i'm not referring to girl groups like twice who just look cute and stare at the camer soulessly, i'm referring to the few ones that can actually hold a note.
> are starving themselves, have to get ps, fuck up their skin and hair due to excessive styling and sometimes even get preyed on by pedo fans.

Solely being a female idol doesn't make you a victim who's only deserving of pity, same as being a male idol doesn't make you like Seungri.

I don't really see your point: why should female groups get longer life spans if they're not offering anything? You say it's understandable that they don't even try because of the way they're treated, but this also means that nobody has a reason to like them either. You might say that boy groups are also not deserving of success, but in the end it's not boy groups and their female fans who are at fault for girl groups being less popular. Hating on male idols while putting female idols on a pedestral won't solve or change anything.

I mean, not necessarily, but.. kinda? The only reason why boy groups are more popular is absolutely not because they're better looking or more talented (obviously they aren't) but they appeal way more to females who just make a better audience, period. They're more loyal, easier to please, easier to attract, more willing to spend buckets of money on merch and waste countless hours streaming, etc.

Her right pelvis and wrist were broken, and her right cheekbone was cracked. She also has a number of bruises all over her body. It will likely take several months to recover.

Quit being this fucking dramatic. He probably only thinks he's cool, edgy or "rebellious" for doing something that slighlty goes against the usual idol style. But at least he's rich enough to get them removed once he feels embarrassed - which will happen soon since no person above the age of 20 likes that.

Has anyone thought of the possibility that he was just copying the artists’ tattoos and using their designs, that’s why there are similarities?

The Army one looks poorly thought out too.
My theory is that he went there and went woah, so cool, decided to become a bit of a rebel, saw the tattoos the artists had and designed and was like “I want this, like yours!”
She works there and most likely she designed and executed half of his tattoos, naturally there will be similarities.
Are his stans so terrified of the possibility that he was not in his right mind during that period and was possibly having a mental breakdown or even was abusing substances, that they decided to create a failing love story instead to justify his worrisome actions?

Dispatch has unveiled scary details behind Red Velvet Wendy's accident on SBS stage.

Dispatch met with field staff that participated in '2019 SBS Gayo Daejun' on the 25th and an official who witnessed Wendy's accident talked about the incident in detail.

The witness stated, "Wendy conducted her first rehearsal at 11:00am on the 25th on the main stage for her Aladdin OST "Speechless" sound test. The sound test went smoothly. The accident happened later during further rehearsals."

"Wendy climbed the second floor tunnel and prepared to walk down the stairs as prepared but the lift didn't go up. At that moment, she lost her balance and fell 2.5 meters down to the stage in a defenseless state."

YG Republique was an idea created by Yang Hyun Suk and the CEO of YG Foods. However, the center saw poor business results and ultimately decided to close down.

The restaurant and entertainment center first opened its doors back in February 2018, and it will shut down even before reaching its 1st anniversary.

That's not really how it works, either you have a good sense of pitch or you don't and referencing sheet music won't help unless you're learning a brand new song from scratch with no original audio or something. Bom has always been constantly sharp and it's not intentional, I'm sure she hears it she just never learned to control her vibrato or modulate pitch on long notes

Hwasa is good but has this throaty, guttural quality a lot of people don't like, with a good coach she could improve it but i doubt she wants to, it's just her voice so whatever. Rose is the opposite, she's actually purposely making her voice sound unnatural and it's so annoying. Listening to her is so tiring, she sounds like she's using all her effort to decide exactly howww everyyyy noooote neeeeds to come outtttt. It can't be fun. Seriously. So exhausting. She can't just chill and have fun singing a song anymore, now that she's apparently set on keeping up this halsey voice and pretending it's natural. No wonder homegirl is having more fun starving & flying to fashion shows, it honestly sounds way easier than laboring thru this singing style

I think it has more to do with the fact that many idols aren't the brightest (no idea about Jiyeon but Jk can barely even calculate) and them being mentally stunted. Both debuted young and are now having childish interests and are making dumb decisions which are usually mad by teens much younger than them. No normal person above the age of 18 thinks Soundcloud rappers or Billie Eilish are cool but if you never had the chance to grow up normally, how would you know? And with your agency and fans treating you like their lapdog you're also easily influenced by others - style and taste included.

Kek there’s some mess going on with her where her agency doesn’t want to promote the song…which isn’t good, by the way. To clarify, she isn’t on Tik Tok (just fan accounts), and doesn’t have a real piercing (looks like a clip-on, since there are scenes when it’s taken out).

Plus, I don't think that they really have a choice. It might seem inhumane, but they're at the top, working as much as possible now is for the best. There are so many groups who fell because their agency neglected them and didn't give them comebacks/tours when there was demand, so bighit is actually doing the right thing with this. In a couple years when Jin reaches his 30s/goes to the military they have to slow down anyway.

Irene really lucked out. She performed with a girl who's like a decade younger than her (in youth obsessed Korea) and nevertheless all the top comments are calling her beautiful.

Also true. Knets are only kissing bts' ass because "they bring honour to Korea!"…

>Netizens are 2faced. Should get rid of their SM hate. How come SM can have a benefit of other groups covering their not-popular-anymore songs? When ceremonies let BTS perform for 20 to 30 mins (it was actually over 40), everything is ok. When other groups cover BTS' songs, they are a clout chaser. When other groups cover SM songs, they are forced to do it because of SM's power.

You’re all just trying to sound the most hateful and edgy so everyone on kpc will worship you and think you wrote the next bible. Kpop is not that deep and if seeing a certain idol makes you think to yourself that you want to shoot up the school or something, get therapy, jfc.

Speaking of txt, I'm so goddamn tired of seeing their bland stages on award shows and their dumb fans hyping them up. They absolutely ruined that shinee song and their bts cover was one of the worst I've ever seen. They had the original track playing in the bg and they didn't bother to sing at all, but their fans are amazed at how much they sound like bts. How fucking braindead do you have to be?

Does bighit really have no shame in getting them that much air time on those shows? I remember that at mma they had like 10-13 mins while mamamoo had like 4. Who the fuck even cares that much about txt?

Not that long ago they were frothing at the mouth bc of that other nugu group that covered bts at mama, calling them cloutchasers. But when their triple eyelid oppars do it it's fine? I swear they're gonna get worse than armys in time

My point is TXT can't cover the song well because they lack a hiphop badboy vibe, I posted the video because TXT's autotune was horrible and what made BTS stand out was the individuality of the vocals and rapline. V, Ratmon, Jhorse, Junglebook all sound very different and have personality which TXT lacks thanks to severe autotune.

A Produce 101 group covered it way better even if they're noobs who did a rushjob, because the vocals aren't autotuned to the point of being devoid of personality, they hit the high notes and added their own raps. TxT are more bland than an Mnet audition group tbh

Gotcha. I forget if it was here or on some other board, ppl saying the interesting parts of txt are (apparently) the story & effects being cooked up and carried out by the creative team, that the members don't matter, they could have a rotating lineup and nothing would change. Kind of like that jpop collective Sakura is from. This isn't a bad idea, it could be some kind of sonic anime or carried out like a long form play with emphasis on storytelling, just what made bts really blow up was the personalities and charisma of the members, they were entertaining and sympathetic and I don't think you can manufacture that, it was a combo of massive luck and timing too. I wouldn't be surprised if everything from bighit is just a gradual downward drop from this point on. Doesn't mean they suck, just the bts phenomenon was a once in a lifetime thing. Tbh I'd be surprised if txt was doing any better than they are now. I don't believe bighit affiliation = instant success. Fans of other bgs can project that insecurity all they want but it's not what's actually happening so they should perhaps calm their tits a bit.

They tried to do a lot of Japan stuff much like several other girl groups that started fading, and even that hasnt worked out well the past couple of years. They all have new faces too so they're practically unrecognizable. The only one worth anything was Bomi because she was genuinely retarded and it was amusing for awhile. Not so much anymore.

Four For Friday - Blackmail
I remember back in the day when TLC gave an interview explaining how all three of them were broke despite selling so many records. They were at the mercy of a one sided record contract. Overseas, it is not so much about being a one sided record contract as it is, just plain evil greed. Over the past few months I have compiled some stories that show how awful being an A list singer in Korea can be and how you can never hope to get out of a contract.

There was a group that disbanded a couple years ago. (#1) It had been around for about a decade. At first it was not a very popular group. The managers of the group thought they should get rid of an at the time a 18 year old female (#2) who they thought was the reason for lack of success. Her parents demanded an explanation as to why she was being replaced. They had been given assurances and guarantees. The managers then told them to stop complaining or they would release a recording of their daughter in a threesome. The daughter was drunk in the video and the men's faces were blurred.

Things went well when that teen was kicked out and new teens were brought in. A few years later another member left (#3). She was forced to leave because she refused to keep having sex with who the managers ordered her to. They found her replacement on a television show that was rigged to make the winner the teen (#4) that the managers thought was best in bed.

Ew they grew up so they stopped sounding like teenage girls, that's an indictment on SK's entertainment industry more than anything else, network PDs get bribes and sex favors so it's hard to compete. KBS invited Apink to perform so they shouldve treated them well.

In any case idol groups lasting past 10 years is a huge achievement, especially girl groups where youth is a factor. SNSD lasted 10 years, Apink are 9 years in and Eung Eung was a decent comeback although I never liked Apink's innocent concepts. Most girlgroups eventually do sexy concepts so Idk why Apink doing that is bad, unless SK has severe Madonna/Whore complex? It's sad that few girl groups can graduate to a mature womanly sound without losing fans, they debut as teens and it's natural to sound different as adults. It's boring that Gfriend/Everglow/WJSN have interchangeably prissy concepts while Twice or Mamamoo corner the market of sounding like adult women singing.

ZEA, B1A4,Infinite, Block B, Teen Top etc are all on hiatus or disbanded so boygroups don't have it much better.

Idk why everyone's so surprised. Entertainment industries of all types, in every country, are hiding prostitution and shady dealings. That's where all the hot jb is more or less farmed for the elites. Idol groups are def used as escorts, I think that's why so many girl groups make brief or rare appearances and never seem busy. It's not "about the music" lol & anyone who says it is is lying to save face. At the very least these female idols are seeking an in for modeling or acting or…other career paths. Idoldom is a foot in the door.

SK is smallish and since the culture is generally conservative, they fancy themselves better at hiding the corruption. The burning sun thing was the first major scandal of this type but think of how much is going on that hasn't been exposed? Look at metoo & Harvey Weinstein in the u.s., look at the actors who have called out the pedophilia and sex rings rampant in hollywood, it's all connected

At the veryyyy least, your bg idols are getting it on with sasaengs who will sign NDAs & offer continued suppression of gossip. At most they have access to high priced escorts who are likely kept on a short leash, no euphemism intended kek, but legally kept quiet. Seungri isn't special he's just the first guy who got caught in a major way. I bet his friends & associates walk around with a lot of anxiety.

Honestly, not saesangs. If anyone, its CEO's and powerful older people in very high positions. Saesangs are actually seen as weak and pathetic in Korea. They tend to be younger and have no actual job, only leeching on already wealthy family members and continuously vying for idols attention by buying the idols things, none of which the idols even keep unless its something little that they can carry or wear through an airport a few times to show "appreciation" for the few fansites that go above and beyond gift wise(like showing up to their events, fanmeetings, musicals, acting jobs etc with gifts, flowers and food for the entire crew). Thats as far as it goes, which is why saesangs are perpetually pining and reeking of desperation, and obsessively seeking information so they can ruin the life of idols that they're obsessed with when they feel unabashedly rejected. Deep down they know idols hate them and only use them and the money to further their own careers while fucking other idols in secret.

Speaking of, I used to be obsessed with looking at the tier of gifts idols would get from fansites like that. Funnily enough, most of the time its not just the fansite owner spending the thousands and thousands, the fansite owner charges membership fees and that money goes toward these events and gifts for idols. Its actually quite smart because most of the time all they're offering to the members are things like "exclusive photo set of 5 photos I took at the airport that nobody else will get to see" kek. Idol fans are suckers. Even the ones low on the totem pole. The idol will never recognize the 75 people who donate to a site, only the main fansite owner.

Apink isn’t “doing bad” because of their concept change or their newfound maturity or whatever, it’s because they’re, as you yourself stated, an old group. Did they outlast others of their generation? Sure. But to what extent? The industry is completely saturated with new groups, and like it or not, even the most loyal fans will find themselves gravitating towards one group or another. They aren’t an objectively “bad” group, fans are just being bombarded with new choices nowadays, choices that are far more active and have a greater presence, providing more chances for them to engage.

This channel in particular seems obsessed with idols losing/gaining weight, and while it tries to cast those who starve themselves/struggle to gain weight in a sympathetic light, it’s still drawing attention to the fact that these idols are underweight.

Funny how the kpoppers complain about this when this exactly the same reason 95% of them started gettin into kpop. So they find it horrible how some shops would choose better looking and young people, but kpop is the exactly the same - using young "attractive" people to sell a product. As if they'd listen to their music if they weren't young, "enhanced" through ps, covered in make-up and colorful clothes
They are so brain-dead that I don't even get annoyed anymore.

They complain because the job of seller is closer to their reality than idol.

Also the two are not 100% comparable. There are several strategies in selling. I know I will not buy my computer from a beautiful blonde because I will assume they are stupid, for example. It depends what you're selling. Idols are selling a bf/gf fantasy or a dream life by proxy for gcrush groups.

TBH most of the wealth belongs to Bigshit, that's prob why they hired lawyers to advise them and why Jin cried in 2018 over BTS almost not renewing contracts. Bigshit really need BTS to rake in the money because they don't even own their own HQ premises yet and need to expand the company. If they wanna expand they gotta milk BTS for all they're worth.

Suga, V, Jimin, Rapmon all look deadeyed as hell, especially Jimin/V. I think Jungkook acting out is also because he's spent his entire teenage years and adulthood training 24/7 or in the spotlight so he missed out on a ton of normal teenage activities. Just look at his tattoos, most 22 year old dudes dont get tattoos that look like a 13year old girl's pen scribbles.

Groups can and will and frankly SHOULD be kicked off for extra adverts, because money. Groups that can't keep fans or put out hits SHOULD disband, bc money.

This blind item really shed a light on the suicide of baby kara's ahn sojin. People speculated that she killed herself because she didn't get into kara, which might be true, but after reading this it might have been possible that she killed herself due to the pressure of having to get into prostitution.

It's also weird because from an article I read
>She was one of the contestants who had the highest chance to debut as Kara’s new member. In every episode of the Kara Project, she was able to complete the mission that was given to her.

So why didn't her? Was there also an underground contest to pick which candidate was best in bed? Ew. I mean when you consider this line
>A few years later another member left (#3). She was forced to leave because she refused to keep having sex with who the managers ordered her to. They found her replacement on a television show that was rigged to make the winner the teen (#4) that the managers thought was best in bed.

A netizen has made an interesting animated gif of T-ara’s Jiyeon.

While Jiyeon is incredibly beautiful as she is, some have commented that her eyes are slightly too close together. So with that in mind, a fan-made picture has surfaced on the internet showing just what she would look like with her eyes moved a bit further apart.

Netizens have taken quite an interest to the picture with comments like :

“ Wow, what a difference 1 cm can make! “

“ Now she looks a lot like Eunjung ”

“ I’ve gotten so used to her eye spacing that other people I see look too far apart ”

You brainwashed dipshit. There is more to our world than money and productivity. There is also something called RESPECT FOR OTHER HUMAN BEINGS, crazy uh ? No group should get kicked off like this. The company planned Xminutes of performance and the group prepared according to this. You can't cut them off so abruptly because your calculations about the audience rate or whatever were wrong.

Tbh I think that this is one of the most accurate comments about bts/bh.

Companies take an enormous cut of idols checks to pay for hair, producers, costume, etc and even charge them for being a trainee and room/board. Sure after it’s all paid off they can get more money but for about 4 years they are in immense debt to their company. I have heard that idols specifically invest in rent houses and stocks because they won’t have enough money to live the rest of their lives and they usually don’t have a completed high school or college education so they have trouble getting jobs. Sad.

BTS don't have that problem of needing a new job post-idol career at all, but they do need to work their ass off for the next 8 years for Bang PD if Bigshit is going to get anywhere near the Big 3.

People don't understand that Bigshit is still unstable and relying on one group only, they're not listed on the Korean stock market and do not own any land (unlike SM YG JYP who own their own HQ building and prime land) so the company has few assets and outside investors, it'll take about 10 years to even get to where more established companies like SM are to have their own offices and a few established groups or solos promoting at the same time. Meanwhile CJ, JYP, SM, Pledis etc are all competitors so Bighit need to invest heavily in debuting new groups with good concepts if they wanna stay relevant. BTS could be the TVXQ or Bigbang of Bigshit, but 1 group can't sustain the company forever so it's still up to Bang PD not to waste BTS's crazy revenue earnings on debuting failures (likely possibilty looking at TXT). If Bigshit can't debut a few more successful groups, outsiders will be less willing to invest in Bigshit even if they want to get traded on the stock market.

That's how you interpreted this? No ones condoning blatant personal mistreatment of idols. It's an explanation for fans who think their faves should get x y or z award or stage time just because it's their fave or "oppar works so hard!" It's not a meritocracy. Decisions are being made by the powers that be who are thinking about their bottom line and little else (they cant even engineer a safe stage or train their cameramen, who royally sucked thru all these recent events)

You think kpop became successful by companies & entertainment conglomerates protecting idols feelings, making sure everyone is treated equally? Should you and your coworkers/classmates all receive the same $$/grades just so you and your friends (fans, as it were) won't get their feelings hurt?

We still shouldn't jump to conclusions such as that it wasn'ta suicide, but it's important to recognize and discuss patterns. It is possible that someone who doesn't have the most supportive family would commit suicide after losing out on a huge dream opportunity after training for 5 years during their prime (debut at 22 is already late, then she lost, so I could imagine her feeling hopeless.) She was the oldest of all contestants apparently and known as "emotional leader" so those could be contributing factors (age shaming and emotional predisposition). However… As soon as Hara died of suicide, and as soon as Han Seohee came out with those screenshots and boosted these rumors that Hara could have been a victim of something much bigger, and now this blind item, on top of the KNOWN Jang Jayeon list of executives she had to sleep with. It really gets you wondering what is going on.

People should be pressuring DSP to step up their mental health support for their current groups at the very least. I guess everyone forgot about Ahn Sojin so quickly since she never got to reach stardom, but this seriously needs to be revisited in light of new details. I wish someone could interview a former member and put them in witness protection or something. If anything bigger is going on I'm SURE as soon as Hara died they were threatened to keep quiet though. I guess only time and HSH's lack of fear of these people might shine more light on all this.

Twitterfags always write stuff about Jimincel supposedly hating white people or Americans because of some cherrypicked pictures but he's always normal and friendly in US interviews. Meanwhile V either looks pissed and doesn't speak or he acts completely fake and makes zero effort to hide it. There are multiple videos of him smiling at somebody and then looking cold as soon as they turn away.
The worst is that fans see him being two faced as savage or as a sign that there must be something wrong with the person he acts rude towards, instead of acknowledging that he might have attitude issues.

Jimin has some very obvious narcissism and rage in him, I think he's every bit as developmentally stunted, possibly worse since he's competing 24/7 with someone he probably really resents

Jk was 15, jimin and v 17. Most people consider 17 to be nearly an adult, while 15 is literally a child, at that age every single year makes a huge difference, mentally and physically. Debuting at 17 isn't ususual at all.
Famous/rich males being angry narcissists isn't acting out (plus isn't jimin the "nice guy"?), besides, all of bts have always acted much more mature. Jhope being hyper is obviously just an act and v has calmed down a lot, the only one still acting like a retard is jk.
Jk is not even able to do simple math, so unless similar bits of other idols exist, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to whether they might be dumb/stunted.

>For SBS‘s Gayo Daejeon, TXT performed an amazing cover of BTS‘s “Boy In Luv” that would’ve made their seniors proud.


>In the process, Taehyun discovered the answer to a mystery many fans hadn’t known about the song’s lyrics.


>After the song’s intro, they shout, “Fire!” before it progresses into the chorus. At least, that’s what fans thought they were saying. Taehyun revealed that wasn’t the lyric at all.


>Instead, BTS had been shouting the phrase “Oppa-ya.” As an ARMY himself, Taehyun couldn’t believe it and had to confirm it with the PD-nim. He wasn’t the only one that was shook; the revelation left fans in shambles.


The dumbest pandering ever. Why would they make young men shout "oppa ya"? Not even gays in korea call older guys oppa. Even if it was true the phrase was "oppa ya" instead of "fire", i'm sure it was a last minute change to suit txt into the ~cute younger brothers~ role even more. Barf.

TXT really seem like Ratmy fanboys devoid of charm or personality. The reason BTS could get way more popular than EXO GOT7 etc thanks to YT and Twitter was their personas and group dynamic causing Stan twitter and YouTubers to create 1 million viral videos of (id say its a conservative estimate) Vkook Vmin JinKook etc etc and fanfics of the group dynamic.

After 1 year of promos, TxT has not inspired 1% of the same kind of interest from pervy stans to make 1000 spam videos of gay TxT moments so I doubt they'll find the same success as BTS.

>>69729 Don't equate Hollywood/US culture to Korea. Stage parenting is uncommon in SK, Koreans are handsoff about socialising with stranger children because it can be seen as creepy.

The biggest suicide factors is that both girls came from divorced backgrounds and got cyberbullied 24/7 without a strong support network to turn to, plus Sulli was Hara's BFF. In SK divorce is still taboo (Koreans and East Asian cultures think divorced parents is a sign of bad upbringing or lack of parental involvement and don't want their kids to marry children of divorced homes) such that cheating/visiting room salon hookers in a marriage is accepted as what all men do. Wives don't rush to divorce because it impacts the kids. Suicides rates in SK are high because of the crazy pressures on social appearances like these or on looks and education, rampant capitalism (people here do everything to get ahead including bully others), plus a very strict age hierarchy where the only people you can talk to casually are same-aged friends (Chingoos hence all the age-line bullshit), anyone younger or older comes with age related etiquette barriers and some form of Old → Young bullying. It's shit and a huge contributor to social stress which doesn't exist outside Korea. In China, USA, Europe people talk normally without having to figure out each others age and appropriate respect level.

That means Sulli, Hara, Jungkook or anyone who debuted young and doesnt have many same aged school friends is lonely, esepcially if they also lack a supportive family. Their last resort for problems is mental health counsellors and they are not widely available unlike the West where every man and dog has a therapist.

Also my Korean friends who live outside SK agree that Korean age hierarchy sucks because you get bullied at school, at work, in life by anyone older who talks down to you thanks to experience (AKA i'm older, I know better, don't question me it's rude, young punk bring that over for me, listen to what i say kid, etcetera). When Ifags wonder why cyberbullying happens so much in SK, they don't get that from a young age Koreans are taught to listen to older people and instruct younger people so even in elementary school sunbaes start to bully or pressurise hoobae juniors despite a 1 year age difference. The only place where this sunbae-hoobae age hierachy bullshit doesnt happen in online, where Knetz can say anything they want to anyone 100% unfiltered without respect or etiquette, so they abuse internet forums and social media to cyberbully and "release steam" because IRL they live in a strict age hiearchy where they cant critique their boss, parents, elders, older coworkers etc and take it out on younger people as well. Knetz are vicious online because age hierachy rules don't apply so there's no societal judgement if you pick on celebs.

Kinda ot but I've been wondering – im assuming the age hierarchy thing is ingrained in every workplace too, does this mean no one can be hired or advance based on skill? Feels like that'd be some kind of opposite (?) of affirmative action, where even if you're stellar at your job, you can't vie for a promotion if it means you'd be supervising someone older than you? Not to mention potential safety hazards – after Sewol i read that the two-pilot rule is useless in Korean airlines because a younger co-pilot won't advise or point out errors if the main pilot is older than him. I totally get the historical basis of the age hierarchy norms, I guess I just wish theyd make some exceptions for public safety or workplace efficiency?

It's too ingrained into Korean society, even the pilots of Asiana airlines crash in San Francisco were also found to be at fault because of age hierarchy making communication difficult for the junior pilot to tell the senior pilot he made a mistake. In Korea bosses force workers to hang out after work and pour drinks for them, if you are a woman you have to show respect by serving food and drinks to all your seniors at work gatherings. Men have to do it too but young women are often targeted for harassment because it is easy for people to use age hierarchy as an excuse to ask you to do things for them. Cyberbullying is rampant in SK compared to other countries because Koreans use it as a release valve and see idols as fair game. Entertainment industry is no different, sunbae-hoobae etiquette is enforced and idols that dont bow to seniors are called out, it's dumb but it's SK where maknaes never have to pay for meals but grudges are held by sunbaes if they feel disrespected and the cycle of old vs young bullying continues down the line. I cant live there personally because everyone older likes to give unsolicited advice and all you can do is nod and feign gratefulness.

Whenever Jeongyeon is brought up here she's called ugly or weird looking, esp most recently an anon said she gives "quasimodo vibes." Then there's always a couple replies going "really? I think she's normal/pretty." Honestly, you're both right. It shifts within eras, or even within single events, for seemingly no reason at all. Seulgi too, she's pretty but also not pretty…? Chaeyoung's been described as both ugly and cute, and yeah somehow she's both? I rarely see debates like this over Hollywood actors or other celebs. Maybe the constantly changing kpop styling gives your brain too many options, so you end up unable to decide? Even my all-time ugliest idol pick, Dahyun, was pretty for five mins for that Move stage last year.

All I will say is most Korean male idols/celebs are not innocent at all and take full advantage of fame's trappings to sow their wild oats in the showbiz industry or make use of groupies lmao, it's hard for men to stay on the straight and narrow in showbiz where temptations abound and women throw themselves at you or spam you nudes.

Honestly, you might be onto something. Selugi may not be a visual but because she APPEARS (I did not day that she IS) to be an ace member:
Decent-looking enough (maybe the monolids giving her an edge -I swear it's the same energy people give to Yeji), can dance, sing decent, appear to have charisma but not be as uppity as Irene, not as obnoxious as Yeri /Joy when being funny/the attention is on them, not get pity passes like Wendy. But, she's not borning to the level of being forgotten like BP Jisoo. Plus she has a LOT of female fans (everyone here is guilty, including me), and I rarely hear men call her "ugly" (except /kpg/4chan incels, they don't count). Even back went all of red velvet was called fat right after debut, netizens would start by saying "Except for Seulgi…"

Or, I might be wrong and she's just gets away with looking like someone with good character on camera. SM calls her their (female) ace. SM probably puts a lot to make Selugi's character on screen such as appearing trustworthy and "can do no wrong". Kind of like how they want Irene as their visual to exude a Jessica/Krystal ice-princess as if she's a queen or politican's wife and giving her full frontal 5-10 second shots to showcase her 'beauty' before, during and at the end of a song.

There were these screenshots floating around of Sistar telling an IOI girl to stay home and not date if possible because "not all male seniors are nice" and they said it right in front of known creeper Leeteuk too. Apparently some agency has a list of male entertainers that are "safe" to approach and talk to

>>69829
If an SM idol gets a lot of public attention and praise, it's because SM allows them to be talked about by giving them a positive image. Seulgi was talked about by Krystal and Sulli on national TV when she was a trainee, and mentioned by name when typically trainees stay hidden to the public. Why would SM sanction that if they weren't gearing to push her to hell and back later?

I'm not saying she's a bad person, but I do believe her image has been very carefully pushed by SM to be this hardworking good-hearted all-rounder in the mold of Taemin and NCT's Mark, while the other members maybe get more unfavourable views than is warranted

I never ever heard anybody call her an ace…?
She seems very cold, and I thought people rather call her underrated for her dancing/stage presence? Plus lesbo ifans love her, but that's it. Never saw anybody say she's a talented singer or very pretty or nice/funny.
Also, Joy called out sbs' apology and said that it pissed her off. Hopefully SM will really sue, so many fans have been telling them to do so.

I got one of my friends into kpop a couple years ago (in high school) when I was into it and she’s so incredibly embarrassing now.

If a store is playing kpop, she’ll stop and loudly say “wait. Holy shit. It’s kpop! Another win” and if she sees black and pink near each other, she’ll keep saying “its in your area”. She’s also a hardcore orbit so I’m sure you guys understand the degree of how bad it is. She also won’t separate her stan twitter from her main no matter how many times I tell her to and she’s literally a teacher. Her students undoubtedly make fun of her at home. Pure cringe. Idk how she hasn’t gotten fired for some of the stuff she’s put on there. She IS my friend but Jesus….

I agree, he hasn't done anything dangerous, there's loads of weirder fans than him. He's not even a pedo (and that means a lot in kpop kek). God knows just how many korean fans act exactly like that - it just doesn't reach the news/twitter. He only got this much attention because he looks so normal (or maybe even attractive to some korean women).

No. 69892

>>69875
It’s not “controversial,” she just lost a visible amount of weight in a short amount of time despite already being quite thin (as you mentioned), which means she’s either a) overworked, b) starving herself, or c) being told to starve herself.

There was no theme for girl group sets as far as I could see, other than "glitter & sequins glued on every square inch of fabric" kek.

lol MBC PDs clearly have beef with Bigshit. Therein lies the toxicity of Korean culture, TV network bosses punish hoobaes like TXT and Gfriend (who only recently joined Bigshit) if BTS or Bigshit offended them.
Ratmies are screaming that BTS don't need MBC since they are global superstars now, but they are too stupid to understand that BTS has to play nice with major TV network bosses if they want Bigshit hoobaes to be invited to weekly music shows and EOY music fests. YG JYP and SM bribe or send hookers to network bosses and Bigshit is reluctant to play that game but it means BTS has to put on super elaborate stages for free to ensure that their hoobaes get treated fairly even if nobody gets paid to perform on music shows like Crayon Pop's Way said.

'They pay you at music programs though. Since it’s an event held by the music program, the broadcaster pays you for being there. But it’s not even enough to pay for transport. You could say it’s nothing.'

According to Way, just being a part of it is such an honor that many idols still participate in the year-end award ceremonies without being paid a cent.

Pedantic much? Doesn't have to be the word ace specifically, if there's even a direct Korean translation for that expression. Seulgi is a pretty solid all-rounder and I could see SM crafting her image like that anon said, if they consider her a solo candidate for later on.

>>69831
>>69829
Seulgi, yeji and a few others are praised for their monolids bc they have classic old fashioned Korean beauty, i can't explain it but i get what they mean even though I'm not Korean. Also personality is a wayyyy bigger factor than fans think it is. If Seulgi had Wendy's personality she wouldn't be half as popular as she is, regardless of talent OR persona manipulation on SM's part. Just off the top of my head Wendy, Seungmin, Hyeri, Jackson, Bom, Jin, Jimin, Jihyo, Rose, baby soul, Miyeon, Lia, and others all have that disposition of eternal insecurity, its truly biological or neurological, like it's just IN them, and no matter how many acting classes they take or therapists they see, it'll never change, it's just who they are. Showbiz is dangerous for these types, I feel bad for them although they knew what they were getting into, at least a little. People like this really shouldn't be in the public eye imo, they end up just getting destroyed by the media and fans.

>I feel like a lot of western k-stans are using it as a substitute seeing as how lacklustre the western pop scene has been as of late.
Imo it's because many young girls are fed up with the low standards of western male beauty. George Clooney is hailed as sex god, dad bods are supposedly hot, so teens jump at every remotely young and attractive guy (e.g. Tom Holland).
Plus with the recent trend of more and more men being into makeup, self care etc, kpop boys fit right into that trend. The metoo movement showed that male american celebs are scary, but a pastel haired >60kg k-idol can't hurt you. Male idols also act sweet, while many western men still think that women are into bad guys.
But I also think that there's more and more western celebrities who realized this, what girls are into and therefore try to also change themselves to fit that mold (e.g. Noah Centino).

Taeyang/Daesung were never good (I like them too but they just aren't, it's ok) but I think the issue might be Taemin is, like, literally the only idol to ever get actual support from his co, I've only heard 3 of his solo songs but noticed they were all right in his range, no tricky ad libs or stylizing, not wordy. Ditto for bts Jin's solo piano song.

Kpop already cares so little about the music, we all know, but then vocals are the thing they care about the absolute least within that, i could rant on but I'll just say in the normal music world singers select songs based on their ability, what works for their voice; high notes & ad libs are scaled down for live shows; keys are changed; songs are rearranged. Kpop doesn't do any of this shit and it's borderline abusive. Esp for the girls, they force them to sing songs that are completely wrong for them, then they get to deal with all the criticism from knetz? it's just so wrong.

Article: "Provocative Couple Performance" Hyuna ♥ Dawn's surprise collabo [2019 Gayo Daejejun]
Source: Mydaily via Nate

1. [+1,611, -67] Even if they are a real couple, what was with this performance? On a year-end show that everyone's watching with their families? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Quite shocking.

2. [+1,459, -73] This is a mating performance, not a singing performance ㅠ

4. [+135, -3] I felt embarrassed watching this with my parents. I had to wake up my sleeping dog and pretend to play fetch.

10. [+85, -2] Were they not able to reserve any hotel rooms because it's the year-end? Why do it on stage like this?

14. [+53, -1] Crazy… on public broadcast?

15. [+45, -2] I was watching this with my in-laws… super embarrassing

11. [+84, -2] Sigh, I knew this would happen. Everyone already knows that they're lovers, did they need to choose a concept like this and take it this far? ㅡㅡ They're both great dancers so they could've showed a stage that shows that off instead of all these sexual acts, rubbing up against each other ㅡㅡ They looked so low class and boring.

This. I’ve always wondered about the appeal when it comes to her. She’s a half-decent performer, can’t sing, and looks completely botched. Is the “empowered female who doesn’t give any fucks” act really that appealing to her audience? Even for men—she comes across as so trashy that I’m surprised there’s any appeal, especially in a country where men seem to prefer the more aloof and feminine idols who better fit the beauty standards.

No. 70267

My initial response was no, if anything it's all a big prank or scheme on HIS part (the stalker), like some elaborate viral marketing thing, or promotion for some project or something of his

But then I thought, that sure is weird he found his way onto that flight, i mean what are the chances, there have to be tons of flights Korea>/<Japan right? And I thought sasaengs kept all their info secret as possible, why else be a sasaeng? No sasaeng would deliberately sic this guy on them would they? They'd be just as liable if found out.

And the guy is German and speaks English. Nothing weird there, plenty of Europeans know English esp in Germany, but if jype was trying to get attention of "western" populations or news outlets, well, they kinda nailed it.

And it is weird how detailed this guy has been on youtube, reddit, twitter. Who describes every step like that, esp a guy who supposedly has such genuine intentions toward her and doesn't want to be seen as a bad guy? And those early posts, about killing female streamers who don't accept the advances of fans or whatever, are almost a lil too perfect. Why weren't those discovered among a lonnng history of posts in other subs regarding random topics like gaming, travel, cooking etc just normal shit ppl discuss on reddit. Also if the dude is so certain he's in the right, why is he describing every minute of this epic for all these people who are against him.

>>70278
Interesting question bc I'm always the one saying nothing any idol does is organic, heh. I'm not sure by any means but he's clearly deviating from the desired mood/vibe needed from the group at certain times, he's pretty blatantly not following instructions from directors & choreographers. If the whole group is looking happy/hopeful, like in the clip i mentioned or mikro cosmos, and hes not, well… Also that tweet above, if it's true, i mean if a non-bts fan is noticing, hes obviously acting however he's feeling with no regard for how it looks.

I kinda like this tho. Officially BTS doesn't need bighit, bighit needs them, and I can see them getting away with a whole lotta shit now. Junglebook's tattoos were child's play, I want a sex/hooker scandal sooo bad haha

>>70284
Yeah I thought all idol IGs were supervised closely, this is also why the sana/suho thing is such BS. I really can't believe theyd be allowed to post something so impulsively, then told to delete it, that just draws more attention to it. I could see that being planned.

But seriously i feel kinda bad now, if he's for reals and nayeon ends up murdered.

Also agree with the other anon that it's odd how public he is being. Even the other sasaengs hardly ever become so public and seem to sell info on a bit of a low-down.

No. 70289

>>70285
yeah, this is why i don't get why they allegedly resigned bc if they left and started their own company, their fans would follow them, not bighit. and they would be able to do things on their own terms and not be overworked etc etc. so it seems like a shitty deal

No. 70295

>>70288 Maybe it's because he's not a "kpop fan" he just saw Nayeon's photos and fell in love with her, not even liking her music. So he probably doesn't know and doesn't care what sasaengs do, cause he thinks he's not one of them.

Many of their songs are composed by foreigners, they would surely follow them as well. And Bighit isn't powerful enough to freeze them out like SM did with Jyj, everybody would be on their side.
I find it mind-baffling how many fans praise Bighit and just "forget" some of the shit they pulled (or maybe they're so young/new that they don't know anything?), e.g. them complaining about their manager calling them fat or a manager threatening to hit them. Just imagine if they talked about that on american tv, Bighit would be over.
Their new contracts must be extremely good…

It's probably not worth it if you put on paper considering big hit owns all brands related to bts. They would have a lot of work to recreate everything from the ground up like their line characters etc

No. 70308

I think an idol (especially female and not that relevant ) with a older, well-known male actor would stir the most shit up, or someone from bts or twice.
Otherwise, people don't give that much fuck. But I don't think they'll release anything, at least not today.

people were actually talking about that when the daniel/jihyo news came out. that would be so gross… definitely casts him in a different light. i do get the feeling sometimes when watching knowing bros/man on a mission/whatever that the good guy act is just that

100% agree. he was recording itzy’s performance at one of the year end shows and stan twitter thought it was endearing. i know we’ve talked before about how heechul’s flamboyant personality is an act and how it’s common for korean men to creep on young girls, but it’s still so gross.

Heechul is widely known as a flirt on Knowing Brothers. Most men in Kpop or Kcelebs even the botched uggos like Nam Taehyun or Zico are flirts/fuckbois like everywhere else, IDK why people are shocked. It's what attracts men to enter showbiz, they get to hang with pretty ladies and have groupies.

I was mildly grossed out when I learned about his "crush" on Sohee and how he used to leave comments on her forums as a fan because he was in his 20s and she was barely 15-16 back then

His "looking out" for girl groups has always given me a weird feeling because of the girls getting younger and younger….all of Itzy were born in the 2000s ffs

The point of Knowing Bro's was to help a bunch of male celebrities with tarnished reputations get back into the lime light so I would be disappointed/grossed out, but not suprised.

kinda off topic and forgive me for the stan twitterism but whats the tea on those men? i think hodong is a really nice, fair person for idols to bounce off of so that would disappoint me. youngchul was kinda racist to lisa in bp's episode so that wouldn't be surprising to me. sangmin is the other one i like. i know one of them (soogeum?) was accused of raping a woman with his manager

kyunghoon had a tax evasion scandal and was really overweight at one point

nta but hodong is an unlikable old man with anger issues, and enough idols have stated how he's basically a nightmare to work with, and that he doesn't really acknowledge them until they get more famous.
I don't know why so many creepy, rude men get to be on almost all korean tv shows, like the dude from radio star. They're not even funny or anything.

Kang Hodong acted so rude and racist towards a japanese(!) singer, that all korean(!) netizens defended him, demanded an apology and got that show taken off air.

He might act nice on Knowing Bros, but all guests claiming he was super scary a couple years back certainly isn't just a joke.
Plus, he sometimes says misogonistic things about/to his wife and then acts as if he's just joking.

Some skim milk to start out with a lean diet for the year.

Someone comments on AsianJunkie's end of the year summary
>I don't want to be mean but I think these ever present, in your face ads you have on the site definitely pay a lot so saying you are not paid and you do this just for fun is a bit… One nice change would be to at least reduce the ads, it would definitely improve the site. I mean, if you are doing it just for fun why this level of terrible ads, right? Just a thing for you to mull over, I'm not trying to be a troll or something, I like your site. Happy new year.

Then the user suggests nonintrusive ads that doesn't redirect to malware as an alternative with some users agreeing. Nothing too bad, right? AJ chimps out with a new post (pic related) and the comment section is complete asskissing. AJ is one of the more tolerable (and literate) k-pop sites and makes some points. But making a spergy rant article was hella retarded.

They always make out criticism against BTS to be because of racism. Boy bands aren't popular amongst the general public in the west, One Direction also used to get made fun of. They'll always pin it on racism though because they think there's nothing to criticise so people MUST be racist if they don't like BTS.
